with us because of george bush and dick cheney, yeah, he certainly had all the signals crossed of the fact that he was carrying out criminal regulations of the cia interrogators who kept us safe in the days after 9/11. this is such a confusing message. fueled with benjamin netanyahu. -- feud with benjamin netanyahu. goes part to the lawsuit of the middle east. killing top al qaeda leaders he has done a good job. again, he goes half way and then he undoes it and al qaeda is stronger now in many ways than it was on 9/11 because it's metastasized. >> laura: come on biden said al qaeda is disseminated. they are on the run. they are running towards us that's the problem. >> absolutely. >> laura: last night we had a former dhs and cia official chad suite on the show. he remarked it was unusual for the government and he wasn't very happy about it. unusual for the government to release so many specifics about the type of threat. now, people are pressing for info for sure. but he was worried that you cut off perhaps sources and other avenues of information when people suddenly okay, zawahiri knows
was incredibly reasonable last night when discussing the nsa and i think if you replaced him with george bush, nobody would be complaining. george bush would have said the same. >> not on jay leno. >> you act like a hypocrite, you condemn him because it came out of his mouth. having said that, there's an overwhelming amount of chaos inside and outside this country. president obama takes on the role of a calm pilot, weaving the plane through the storm. the problem is his policies. you can argue about being on jay leno. that's not the problem, the problem is he should be doing something about bigger issues like joblessness, which is a fact that he is not at all engaged in the fracking issue which would do a lot to reduce strife in the middle east, lower the four buck, five gallon buck of gas. not ragging on him for playing basketball. what a bunch of baby games. >> i push back a little, too. i don't have a problem with him playing golf on free time, but when you close 22 embassies, pull that many american diplomats off line. >> he hasn't come out in an official presidential press conference to
over a decade ago after 9/11 where george bush to get the patriot act through. huge battles. i want to know is obama ready? does he have the stomach to go into a legislative battle such as he's going to have to have? he wants this committee to report in 60 days that's going to fix the foreign surveillance court, 60 days. he's also got obama care coming up in 60 days and also a continuing resolution coming bin 60 days. do you think he has the stomach for this? >> no. he hasn't shown the character or shown the leadership to be able to do this because look that. he did this press conference on a friday. on a friday afternoon during the middle of august when hoping some people weren't watching and i think the real reason why he did this press conference and why it was so much about the nsa and the spying, was because he saw his negatives in the polling going up over 50%. there's several national polls right now that have his disapproval ratings over 50% and he's got real problems with his base and he was talking to his base today. he was saying know the spying is not that bad. the worst
was not in a george bush style you need my steady hand on this site so we can continue and keep being protected. we are kind of done now. they are on the run. and it turns out that's not the case. people wanted to hear that message i think the press was happy to deliver that message. despite something like benghazi which was a pretty big attack on 9/11. now we are finding out we should have done more work on those embassies and secured them much better. >> what he also said and bernard you can chime in here. the president has said consistently that we can't keep now fighting this war on terror forever. the national defense university speech. now several weeks ago, you know, we can't fight this perpetual war. i kind of many have some, you know, empathy for that point of view. can't have a war machine that never ends. the fact is we do have real threats out there. to down play the threats, what looks like for political reasons last year, is really reprehensible. especially after what we saw with benghazi. >> i don't think down playing the threats at all. playing it straight with the american people.

the financial crisis happened at the end of the george bush sww. bush president and the economy went down the toilet across country, there were a million manifestations that were material, for individual families, people who lost their jobs, us as a country. in 2008, our economic growth rate was negative 8.3%. that was the negative growth rate that quarter for the whole country. one of the weirdly unsettling manifestations of that very dark time in our recent history was when some towns and some counties and some states decided they had to unpave themselves. do you remember this when we decided that the united states of america could no longer afford paved roads? 38 counties in michigan started grinding their paved roads, their asphalt roads into gravel because they could not afford to keep them paved. in south dakota, 100 miles of afault road ground into gravel. in ohio, they couldn't afford to grind down their roads. ohio counties made an official decision to let their paved streets erode into unpaved streets. this started happening in 2009 when the economy was still just spiraling down

at two other instances in which an american president used force, in the case of george bush in iraq, he had a congressional authorization and one u.n. resolution. in syria he has, president obama has neither of those but i think the u.s. congress and many in the need yaw are saying, what about libya? i mean we went to war in libya without a congressional authorization. we spent one billion dollars. we had 220 tomahawk missile strikes, et cetera, et cetera. what do we have at the end of it? we have benghazi with dead american ambassador and three diplomats and a country not really controlled by its own government. are we any better off? so there is so much skepticism as lauren pointed out, within the media but it mostly is based on america's previous experiences using force projecting force, mostly on its own. jon: let me take you to the second part of that charles krauthamer column because he touches on some of those points that you just made, judy. he also wrote last year, mr. obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. this year he grandly declared that the entire war o
